This experience was so wonderful.
The tour guide was incredibly thorough and funny. He really made the tour. I met very nice people on this tour. You have more than enough time to see everything for the full day tour with lunch.
The trip was good but it’s just a few tips, organisation and tickets to the attractions.
Neil who was our guide was good but didn’t explain enough about Geneva city, Charmonix and Switzerland.
It was still a good trip. Just wanted to make sure people know what they’re booking.
An absolutely great day. The trip up the mountain on the cable car was a highlight. We had a blue sky day so the views were the best. The trip on the train was just as good with fantastic views. The town is a beautiful place to wander around with lots of shops to explore and cafes to enjoy

Excellent Chocolate & Historical Old Town Walking Tour
, Dec 2019
Our guide Julie was friendly and very knowledgeable. She provided a lot of interesting information about the history of chocolate and the history of Geneva. You really get the benefit of two tours in one – a thorough old Town tour and a chocolate tour. Even though the weather was overcast and cold when I took the tour in December, it was still enjoyable. While there are tastings at every Chocolatier, there won’t be time to stop and purchase items at every location. Therefore, I would suggest writing down the names, or taking a photo, of the Chocolatiers you would like to return to later on. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends.
There are many things for which Switzerland is famous—Alpine peaks and stylish watches to name but two—but chocolate surely trumps them all. On this tour, explore Geneva by land and water, delve into the decadent world of Swiss chocolate, and see this tasty treat in all its colorful guises. Discover artisan shops where chocolate is made the traditional way, and sample the delicious treats on offer.
A wonderful way to see and experience this gorgeous area of Switzerland
, Aug 2019
My 10- and 8-year olds and I loved this tour. We found it worthwhile to do the upgrade to “Gold” which includes the cheese fondue tasting and the panoramic train ride. We wish there was more time to spend at the gift shop after the Cailler tour ended, and some time to eat a proper lunch. While the cheese fondue experience was fun, it wasn’t a full meal, and by the time we had an hour to spend on our own in Gruyères, it was 2 pm, and we wanted to spend the time there (only 45-60 mins) exploring. The tour guide, Maggie, was excellent and the ride was comfortable. Overall, a day well spent!
Delve into the rich traditions and picturesque landscapes of Switzerland during a full-day train and coach trip from Geneva.

Day Trip to Montreux, Chaplin's World Museum and Chillon Castle
Delightful Guide & Interesting Sites
, Sep 2019
This was a wonderful day all around. Yolanda was the most thoughtful, well informed and friendly guide (a breath of fresh air compared to the awful guide, Neil, that we'd had the day before). She provided interesting insights about the region and was very engaging. We visited Chaplin's Museum (I hadn't been excited about that part but turned out to be really interesting), drove through the scenic vineyards, visited Vevey, a steamboat ride to Chillon Castle and ended at Montreux. A fun-filled day all around. It was also a small group which made it even more enjoyable.

Riviera Col du Pillon & Glacier 3000: High Level Experience Swiss Alps from Lausanne
Fantastic place - some hiccups with logistics
, Sep 2019
We were very lucky with a weather! Nice and sunny (just after nasty wind and rain on the day before). That made our experience outstanding as everything on top was covered with fresh white snow. Made a stop in the vinery area on the way to Col du Pillon and Montreux on the way back. When you order please make sure that you are booked for the lift up as otherwise it would be surprise ad-hoc costs upon arrival to the place...
First, i have to thanks Tom for the guidelines and the helpful information.
You have a great view of the mountains and the valley when you are in the peak. The glasier is huge, even in summer you can find enough snow to play.
Montreux is a pretty place to stay for a while and enjoy a coffee in the evening.
